Pigeons and only pigeons!

Near Red Fort, Agra in the morning fog, pigeons are feeding on grains! Surprisingly we don't see other birds like house sparrows, parrots, gursals, crows etc. these days especially in the cities.

While clicking this pic I was thinking "Pigeons are able to survive in the cities but why not other birds?"


  1. You will be surprised.We have hundreds of them in our kitchen window every morning for corn feed

  2. Chandrika,

    Sparrows have almost become extinct and there are very few crows or kites seen these days in Delhi. It has been said that this is due to radiation from mobile phone towers. Seems right.

    Take care
